New Age Pantsulas In Bo-Kaap: Watch K.O. & Cassper Nyovest’s Music Video For ‘Waya Waya’

Watch K.O. and Cassper Nyovest's Cape Town-shot video for "Waya Waya."

K.O. just released visuals to his Cassper Nyovest-assisted single "Waya Waya," from the 2-track EP Two Piece Two Piece.


On the video, which was directed by Cape Town-based filmmaker Andile Sinqoto, was filmed in The Mother City, in Bo-Kaap and in some parts of the Cape Flats.

The two new age pantsulas render some dance moves alongside a crowd excited extras who also gyrate and proudly sip their ngudus. The video being shot in the hood is a fit for "Waya Waya," as the song borrows a lot from kwaito, just like a lot of K.O.'s and Cassper's songs.

K.O. did hint on Twitter a few weeks ago that he will shoot videos for both songs on Two Piece. So, best believe there will also be visuals for "Fire Emoji," which features AKA. It's about to get litty.

Watch the video for "Waya Waya" below, and listen to Two Piece here:

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
